29/09/2020, at 18:45 GMT
England. League Cup

Odds: 1.9


Tottenham have lost only one of their last eight official matches at home. In six of these eight matches, the bet "total under 2.5" played. In their last nine official away games Chelsea have won three times. In all these meetings the "total over 2.5" bet played. In nine of ten previous away matches in the League Cup, Chelsea have played both to score. Chelsea have beaten Tottenham in all four of their last face-to-face meetings. In the Premier League last season the Blues beat Spurs 2-0 and 2-1.


Tottenham didn't start this season well. The main successes of Spurs are associated with the Europa League, where Jose Mourinho's wards passed Skandia (3:1) and Lokomotiv from Plovdiv (2:1). Tottenham scored only four points in the Premier League in three rounds. Spurs defeated Southampton (5:2), lost to Everton (0:1) and tied with Newcastle (1:1).

In the League Cup, Tottenham went further due to the fact that the opposing players were diagnosed with the coronavirus. Unlike previous seasons, Tottenham have spent a lot on this transfer window. Giovanni Lo Celso was bought from Betis for 32 million euros, Real Madrid left-back Sergio Regilon was bought for 30 million, Wolverhampton right-back Matt Doherty was bought for 16.6 million, whereas Southampton central midfielder was bought for 16.6 million »Pierre-Emile Huybjerg. Moreover, Tottenham rented their star Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

Wherever Mourinho coached and no matter how badly his team played, the players won some trophies. This is probably what the Tottenham management hoped for when they invited this specialist. Tottenham won the League Cup for the last time in 2008, whereas they reached the final in 2015, where they lost to Chelsea (0:2).

Not available from Tottenham for the upcoming match Son Heung Min, Gareth Bale and Japhet Tanganga. The participation of Moussa Sissoko is in question.

If Tottenham spent a lot, then Chelsea became the record holder of the transfer market. However, the teams' results are identical. Perhaps Chelsea are prettier. In the Premier League, the “retirees” beat Brighton (3:1), lost to Liverpool (0:2) and drew with West Bromwich (3:3) and defeated Barnsley in the League Cup (6:0).

Chelsea spent about 250 million euros this offseason, which in the context of the coronavirus looks a lot of money. For 80 million euros, Kai Havertz was bought from Bayer, Timo Werner came from Leipzig for 53 million, the Blues paid 50.20 million for Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell, and 40 million was paid for the right winger Ajax by Hakim Ziyech. Chelsea acquired Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy for 24 million and centerbacks Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva came as free agents. In fact, this is a full-fledged new team, so the players clearly need to play together.

The last time Chelsea won the League Cup was in 2015. "Pensioners" in the final defeated Tottenham. Last season, Chelsea were eliminated in the round of 16, beating Manchester United (1-2). Before that, in 2019, the Blues reached the final of the tournament, where they lost on penalties to Manchester City.

Billy Gilmour, Christian Pulicis and newcomer Hakim Ziyech are injured at Chelsea.


Without a doubt, this match looks difficult to predict. Both clubs are undergoing restructuring and are playing unstable. Chelsea have traditionally played well in cup tournaments, but this time the retirees play early on.

It is clear that none of the teams is going to waste the tournament. Considering the statistics of Chelsea's recent away games in the League Cup and in general, you can bet on a productive match here.

Our forecast is both will score + total over 2.5 for 1.90 in BC 1xBet
